Royal Enfield Inter Scrambler 650 by K-Speed Customs: We come across major motorcycle modifications from time to time but some unique customizations stick with us and are worth a mention. One such motorcycle modification we came across recently has been done by K-Speed (Thailand) on the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650.

One of the best things that set this modification apart is the repositioning of the instrument panel near the engine. The factory-fitted instrument console has been placed by the customizers in a vertical position just near the motorcycle engine.

Taking inspiration from the Triumph Scrambler, the modification done to the RE Interceptor 650 features the same exhaust setup. The twin Diablo pipes have been covered with heat shielding material that protects the rider’s skin while the round exhaust ends further offers the motorcycle a unique appeal.

The modifiers opted for a muscular stance for the motorcycle by equipping it with massive off-road tyres at either side. The 130/60 tyres at both sides have been mated to blackened out rims. The engine box has been further offered a shield while the custom side panels feature mesh openings.

The customizers have offered LED lighting set up at the front while the redesigned single-seat saddle further adds to the aggressive stance of the Royal Enfield Inter Scrambler 650. A large custom-pipe handlebar has replaced the standard unit while the switchgear setup has also been tweaked with the one with much simpler functionality. The overall blackened out components adds to its surreal beauty.

The customizers have not offered any mechanical changes to the motorcycle. The modified Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 continues to be powered by a 648cc parallel-twin, 4-stroke, fuel-injected engine that is capable of churning out a maximum power of 47HP at 7250 rpm and a peak torque of 52 Nm at 5250 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. It continues to feature the same disc brakes at either end while the standard suspension setup has also ben retained.

The owners of the Royal Enfield 650 Twins will be delighted to know that Race Dynamics, an Automotive Research and Development facility in Bangalore is offering a plug and play ECU for both the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650. Amidst many custom bike performance enhancing firms, the PowerTRONIC Engine Management System offered by Race Dynamics has claimed to increase the power and torque figures by 3.35 HP and 3.15 Nm respectively.

Powering the Royal Enfield 650 Twins is a 648cc, parallel twin engine, capable of churning out a maximum power of 47 HP and 52 Nm of utmost torque. The updated power and torque values after the installation of ECU stands at 50.35 HP and 55.15 NM respectively.

The ECU that can be installed in under 40 minutes will boost up the power and torque outputs by controlling both the fuel and ignition in order to deliver optimal performance and better throttle response. According to Race Dynamics, the Plug and Play ECU has been specifically designed by putting in numerous hours in research and development, validation as well as considering the rider feedback.

The PowerTRONIC ECU is available with 2 custom engine maps: Race and Race+. The first map allows the rider to gain performance in mid-range while the Race+ allows the rider to improve the performance in the mid-range as well as top range. The rider can switch amidst the two maps even when the engine is running.  The maps offer better transient response thereby decreasing the throttle sluggishness in low-speed riding conditions.

The customers can avail the ECU with an optional quick shifter for smoother clutchless upshifts. The power boost offered by the Plug and Play ECU does not tamper with the engine refinement and helps in minimising the vibrations to a large extent. According to the brand, the installation of the Plug and Play ECU doesn’t require any wire cutting. This allows the motorcycle to return to its stock condition once the ECU is removed.

Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 with USD forks from KTM 390 Duke is the most recent addition to the modified RE bikes of India. The retro-modern machine already looks impressive but, adding the forks helped Abhinav Bhatt claim an impressive stance for his prized possession.

As with regular updates where technology gets compromised, this one is a different example. The 41mm forks were replaced not just with these USD forks but, the brake calliper was also replaced with the radial mounted unit. Here, the ABS setting was retained to keep safety as the utmost priority for the model. The handlebar was also replaced to achieve this bold stance.

The owner is yet to decide what paint finish should he prefer for the motorcycle while the brake and clutch levers have also been replaced with the aftermarket units. The exhaust setup seems incomplete at the moment but once ready, the motorcycle will be completely different from the Interceptor 650 everybody knows in the country.

The 648cc, twin cylinder engine on the bike is good for 47 HP and 52 Nm. The output may not change here as engine tuning is not a part of the modification plan. However, using performance parts may improve the overall running dynamics of the motorcycle.

Royal Enfield is planning to hike the prices of Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650 by around INR 20,000 in the coming days. This will take the starting price up to INR 2.70 lakh for the former and INR 2.85 lakh for the latter. However, a slight fall in the sales number can be expected with this move as most of the buyers in India are price-sensitive when it comes to big displacement motorcycles.

Also, the overall sales figure posted by Royal Enfield is not that healthy to support this price hike. The current price tag of INR 2.50 lakh makes Interceptor 650 the most happening bike of the Indian market, rivalling products that are almost double in price when compared through engine similarity.

Royal Enfield is struggling to keep up with their own legacy, registering a downfall in sales when compared to the iconic sales number of 2018. The brand is planning to open 350 studio outlets with a primary focus on the rural market. The 12-20 units per month of sales target, along with just 500 sq.ft of the total area will help new partners with a decent amount of capital join the RE family. The 225 sq.ft of the area will be dedicated to the display space while remaining will go into the service and spares section. The brand currently has 825 dealers in India and 42 international stores.

The number of dealerships is expected to touch the 1100 mark by the end of this year. The brand has never tried entering the rural market with a dedicated studio outlet plan and unlike other brands, they have a dedicated fan following across the rural areas of the country. The one-sixth size will bring down the operational cost, keeping the initial real estate investment low and still, allow a decent number of product displays. As this decade will soon come to an end, the brand is strengthening itself for the next 10-year term that will be full of surprises.

The brand will first shift from BS4 to BS6 during the next few months and above all, introduce better versions of their own bikes. They could phase out the 499cc engine in favour of the 648cc motor as the primary sales-driving part will still be the 346cc engine. Breaking the 350cc barrier will bring more taxes to them and thus, future depends upon two engine segments for sure. The Himalayan could shift to the bigger 648cc platform while Bullet, Classic, and Thunderbird names would rule the 350cc segment. The studio outlets may focus on these three motorcycles initially.

The 650cc Royal Enfield Twins were launched in November last year and are the most affordable 650cc motorcycles in India. The Royal Enfield Interceptor and the Continental GT are expected to get a price hike soon. A recent report states that the 650 Twins price may go up by INR 15,000-20,000. The price hike update has been reported by GaadiWaadi and the official confirmation from the company’s side is still awaited.

Currently, the Interceptor 650 is priced from INR 2.50 lakh, while the Continental GT is available from INR 2.65 lakh onwards. If we expect the price hike of INR 20,000 then the Interceptor 650 will start from INR 2.70 lakh and the Continental GT 650 will start from INR 2.85 lakh. This would be the first price hike as the prices of the 650cc Royal Enfield Twins remained the same since their launch.

The bikes have been designed to be a global product and they are available in international markets like USA, UK, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia, and New Zealand. Siddhartha Lal, the MD and CEO of Eicher Motors said in an interview last year that the company hopes to achieve global annual sales figure of up to 1 million units with the 650cc twins in the coming 5 to 10 years.

650cc Royal Enfield Twins Launched in Vietnam: Royal Enfield is continuously marking its presence globally by reaching new markets. The latest country to receive the 650cc Royal Enfield Twins is Vietnam. The company has even announced the inauguration of its second store in the country which would be located in Hanoi.

Since the launch of the 650cc Twins, the experts have shown positive results in sales. The Royal Enfield 650cc bikes have registered domestic sales and exports of 5,168 units since their deliveries began in November 2018. Royal Enfield has even increased its production capacity to 4500-5000 units per month which were previously about 2500 units.

Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 (INT 650)
Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is Known as INT 650 Outside India

The company has already launched the INT 650 and the Continental GT 650 in markets like the US, UK, Australia, and Thailand among several others. According to the company, these two bikes have been developed and designed specifically for the global markets.

Mechanically, the Royal Enfield INT 650 and the Continental GT 650 are powered by the same 648cc, powerful parallel twin-cylinder, air+oil cooled SOHC engine. It has been tuned to deliver 47 HP of power at 7250 rpm and 52 NM of torque at 5250 rpm.

The engine of both the bikes is mated with a six-speed gearbox, which is a very first on Royal Enfield with a slipper clutch system. However, they both get a different styling as the INT 650 is a modern retro roadster while the Continental GT 650 is a cafe racer.

Siddhartha Lal, the MD and CEO of Eicher Motors, the parent company of Royal Enfield, said in a recent interview that the 650 twins could reach an annual sales figure of up to 1 million units globally in the coming 5 to 10 years.

Launched in November 2018, the Royal Enfield 650 Twins have seen outstanding demand considering their affordable price tags and retro designing, leading to an extended waiting period for the deliveries. At present, the waiting period stands at 3-6 months across the country in addition to a few extra days when it comes to different dealership locations.

In order to axe the higher waiting time, the brand has increased production of the Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650 from 2500 units per month to 4000-5000 units a month. The delivery periods for both the cruisers remain the same even though the demand for Interceptor 650 is quite higher than its sibling. Royal Enfield’s Oragadam plant also experienced workers’ strike in the month of February, thus contributing to one of the reasons for untimely deliveries and extended waiting period.

Experiencing a gradual increase in the number of units sold for the 650 Twins, the brand was able to sell more than 1445 units in the month of February 2019. Powering the Royal Enfield 650 Twins is a 648cc, parallel twin cylinder, air-cooled engine capable of churning out a maximum power of 47 HP at 7,250 rpm and an utmost torque of 52 Nm at 5,250 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

New 350cc-700cc+ Royal Enfield Motorcycles in the Making: A recent report claims that Royal Enfield is working on a brand-new strategy to take competition right to the doorsteps of Harley-Davidson and Triumph Motorcycles. They are dividing the product range into the J, P, Q, and K platform.

The J segment will handle the most-selling 350cc-500cc single cylinder platform, waiting for a complete overhaul from last few years. Royal Enfield is expected to launch an updated version of 346cc and 499cc bikes with modern technology and redesign of certain elements, same as Harley did with most of the bikes in their lineup. The exact time-frame for this change is not available but, test mules with modern technology were recently spotted in India (Know More).

The codename P fits both Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650, leaving buyers with an option of twin-cylinder large displacement in the price segment of a sporty 300cc bike. Platform Q is expected to rival entry-level Harley bikes like Street 750 and Street Rod. The comparison will require a tuned version of their present engine or something bigger with more emphasis on torque than peak power.

Still, undercutting these Street series bikes by INR 1 lakh will be their preference. No example from this segment has been spotted till date from the brand while many reports hint that a more purpose-built motorcycle on the Interceptor frame will do the needful.

The K platform is expected to rival premium Bonneville series from Triumph, using a 700cc+ engine (most probably closer to 900cc for right competition) and set of premium components. The price range for this motorcycle is expected to fall in line with present Harley entry level bikes, offering more torque to ensure that buyers don’t give them a miss. The RE Bobber 838 fits this description with ease. Royal Enfield is currently retailing 346cc, 411cc, 499cc, and 650cc engines in India.

Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is an extremely well-priced motorcycle and a recent report of cost regarding the first service makes it feel even better than before. The owner reported INR 2578 as the total cost, including the GST value on consumables. However, the first service is considered under the free category and does not include any labour charge. The motorcycle consumes 3.1-litre engine oil of 10W50 grade and thus, the INR 2011.90 went into the oil change section. The oil filter for the motorcycle costs INR 450 while the chain clean and lube costs INR 116.19. The service interval for the new Interceptor 650 is 10,000 km or 1-year, whichever comes earlier.

The owner seems like a leisure rider as the first service period was exhausted with just 493 km. The service cost will not vary by a huge margin all over India as consumables are priced at the same cost at all dealerships. The huge service interval also guarantees that the buyer will not need to visit the dealership after every three months like regular motorcycles sold in India. The next service at 10,000 km may bring additional costs like air filter and injector cleaning to the owner. Still, the amount is pretty decent and this value is much smaller than the one seen for BMW G310R’s first service (Know More).
